The Democratic Republic of Osterlicsh is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 236 million Osterlicshians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Osterlicshian economy, worth 5.51 trillion Fasers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 23,331 Fasers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that Leader's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, the government considers the rising number of McRonald's fast food restaurants to be great progress, and childish pranks are no laughing matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osterlicsh's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Osterlicsh is ranked 111,913th in the world and 4,560th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 516.58 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
